Worst Song Ever Written

I never heard the whole song, just that one phrase 'excerpt' and I thought, yes, we really, really need to know what they want, and we should tell them what we really really want. I'm so regretful now at advanced old age that I could have had more, if I hadn't been so shy. But don't pity me. I had my share. Three more than generous wives. One was a European, from Vilnius!!!

Oooh I like "Billy Don't Be a Hero". I'm singing it in my head as I type :lol::oops:


Isn't it odd how you can remember lyrics from songs that you havent heard for many years but when it comes to other stuff it just 'goes'.


Maybe that is the way forward with education... put it all to music and you remember what you learned forever :lol::wink:

Mary, "In the Ghetto" ???? One of the worst songs ever written? I'm stunned, appalled, dismayed, and astonished to say the least. Well, I'm acting like a troll, jumping on something as trivial as popular music, and I apologize for reacting. It's just that it seems to come from somewhere in left field.


That song from a southern white boy seemed to bridge a gap in my un-appreciation of his ouvre. Sorry for feeling compelled to react.

Never thought I'd be pushing Elvis lyrics as decent:

As the snow flies

On a cold and gray Chicago morn'

A poor little baby child is born

In the ghetto

And his mama cries

'cause if there's one thing that she don't need

it's another hungry mouth to feed

In the ghetto


People, don't you understand

the child needs a helping hand

or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day

Take a look at you and me,

are we too blind to see,

do we simply turn our heads

and look the other way


Well the world turns

and a hungry little boy with a runny nose

plays in the street as the cold wind blows

In the ghetto


And his hunger burns

so he starts to roam the streets at night

and he learns how to steal

and he learns how to fight

In the ghetto


Then one night in desperation

a young man breaks away

He buys a gun, steals a car,

tries to run, but he don't get far

And his mama cries


As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man

face down on the street with a gun in his hand

In the ghetto


As her young man dies,

on a cold and gray Chicago morn',

another little baby child is born

In the ghetto
